Ottawa Area & Neighbourhood Information
A short, pleasant 20 minute drive from downtown Ottawa, taking highway 31 (Bank St. South), will find you in the Village of Greely. This small bedroom community has become the fastest-growing village in the area owing mainly to the fact of its close proximity to Canada's capital.
Greely was one of many villages, towns and cities to join the Ottawa amalgamation in 2001. Bounded by Bank St. and Mitch Owens Road by both the north and east and on the west by Manotick, Greely could presumably have as many as 1700 more family dwellings built within the next several years.
Shopping in Greely
One of Greely's busy spots seems to be their grocery store, Foodland. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week complete with deli and LCBO. Several Elementary Schools and High Schools are within village limits as well as a Fire Hall, Legion, two gas stations, restaurants and Public Library. Over one hundred businesses are listed as being part of Greely. A large Business Park is just on the outskirts.
The Greely Family Medical Centre is located in town. Larger hospital facilities are just a 20 minute drive from the village in the city of Ottawa. Nearby, the communities of Metcalfe and Osgoode have Dental Offices. The Greely community also has an animal hospital for all your pets' needs on the east side of Bank St. across from Parkway.
Greely Sports and Recreation
Softball and the Greely Grizzlies Hockey teams are always looking for new players during seasonal games and practices. In this small village, parks and greenspace abound! Sporting facilities are also found in nearby Metcalfe, Manotick and Osgoode.
